Jordan's king dissolves parliament ahead of polls
Sun Aug 19, 2007 10:22AM EDT

AMMAN, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Jordan's King Abdullah issued a
decree on Sunday dissolving parliament and told the
government to prepare for multi-party polls later this year,
officials said.

They said the decree dissolving the 110-member parliament,
whose four-year term formally ended last April, and the call
to prepare for elections, was a clear sign that the monarch
would not use his constitutional right to delay the polls.

The government is expected to set an election date this
week, probably in November.

It is perfectly normal for a head of state to dissolve
the parliament for new elections. In Jordan's case,
this parliament's electoral mandate has already expired.
